I love bringing you guys up and coming models. One I have seen on Instagram a lot is Jaye Sand. He has an amazing look. I think we will see a lot more of him in the future. Here is our interview.
Why did you want to get into modeling?
That’s a good question. I never actually planned on going into modeling; it just sort of happened to me. I was contacted by a photographer out of the blue and asked if I wanted to model for him, so I did it and ended up really liking it. I decided to use it as a motivational tool to continue pushing myself to be better.
Why underwear/swimwear underwear/swimwear?
It’s a very liberating feeling being able to pose in only underwear/swimwear. I also find that people tend to be more interested in photos that show more skin. But, I imagine that’s not a very surprising revelation.
What do you think sets you apart from other models in the industry?
I love being able to help a photographer create art. Creating a piece that makes a viewer feel something is my goal going into any shoot, even if what the viewer feels is just the desire to buy the brand that I’m wearing. It’s great being able to work with a variety of photographers and having the capability to create images that wildly differ in both an emotional and creative aspect. I think this is what sets me apart from some other models in the industry. I think some models get too caught up in the ego or money that is sometimes involved in modeling.
Having had the pleasure of modeling so far with Blue Nectar Tequila, I’ve learned brand modeling is a fulfilling and enjoyable experience. I have worked with a variety of photographers, so I won’t bore the readers with a long list, but I will say that I really love working with the photographer Gordon Nebeker. It’s always a lot of fun working with him and I’m always happy with the results in the end.
Underwear has many styles from boxer briefs to thongs. Do you have any pairs you don’t want to wear on a shoot?
Thongs really don’t look good on me. They just are not pleasurable to wear. I guess I’m just not a thong enthusiast.
Are there any underwear/swimwear brands you’d love to work with? Why?
I’d love to work with Aronik. I really like the look of their swimwear. They are definitely my dream brand.
Which photographers would you love to work with on a project?
I’d love to work with Chris Davis, his photography brand is called specular. He has taken some really interesting images and it would be amazing to get the chance to work with him.
Outside of modeling and working out what do you do in your down time? What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy spending most of my time being active. My hobbies include: rock climbing, water skiing, swimming, hiking, anything that helps me disconnect. I also really want to try skydiving one day. I usually spend most of my time studying for classes though. Student life typically doesn’t leave that much free time.
Models can’t always eat great what is your favorite guilty pleasure in food?
Sometimes when I have that late-night craving I’ll order a whole large pizza and eat it myself. Highly recommend.
